Latin America in the World Economy considers the dual aspect of Latin American development: how external factors (phases of world capitalism since Columbus) interweave with internal factors (Latin American culture, politics, and social groups). Weaver skillfully demonstrates how domestic social conflicts and power relations have consistently capitalized on changes in the international economy while, conversely, engagement with the international economy has consistently constrained local struggles and patterns of change. Over half of Latin America in the World Economy focuses on the short twentieth century (after 1930), and the way that the book frames recent events and processes in broad historical and comparative terms is appropriate for courses on world history and comparative development as well as for more specialized courses on Latin America.
